Summary Les Murray, recognised by many as the 'face of football' in Australia, began his love of the world game as a young boy growing up in communist Hungary. But in 1956, when Murray was just 11 years old, his family fled the country escaping persecution because of his father's anti-regime views. They were smuggled across the border into neighbouring Austria before eventually being settled in Australia. In this special and final episode of Dateline for 2011, host Mark Davis joins Murray as he returns to Hungary. In a personal and emotional journey, Murray visits his childhood home and searches for the man who helped his family escape, armed with only his name and the name of the village where he lived.In Australia today, people smugglers are labelled as criminals taking advantage of the most vulnerable, but for Murray, these people were very necessary in helping his family and others like them, escape oppression and persecution.It has always been Murray's dream to be able to meet this man and thank him because without him, Murray and his family may never have found freedom.
